I just noticed Mac version's MS Office v.X chops off long file names to comform them to thirty-something character limitation. I have a bunch of MS office files (Words and Excel) with long file names (such as, weekly sales report for September 2005) and they are backed up in the external HDs. I copied them over to my Mac's external HD so that I can edit them. But, Office v.X cuts off file names if they exceed that cap. Is there any patch to keep the original file names intact and is usable & editable under Mac. I run both Tiger and Panther.
